School Council News – Litter Competition

School Council, in conjunction with City of York Council, want to encourage children and residents of Elvington to be litter aware. Therefore, they have helped launch a competition to remind the community of this environmental issue.

Entry Details:

  • Children are to design an A4 poster to encourage people not to drop litter and keep our village/environment clean and tidy
  • Child’s name and year group to be written on the back of each poster
  • Use felt tips – not crayon as it does not show up!
  • Writing must be clear and spelt correctly
  • It must be their own work – no clip art/google

The launch will be on Monday 18th Feb with an assembly at 2:45 run by York City Council.

Judging will take place on Monday 11th March.

Winners will be announced in assembly on Monday 18th March.

There will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize-winner for each year group. The Parish Council and the Ward Committee of York City Council have kindly donated prizes. 1st prize winners will in addition, have their work made into a poster to display around the village!
